Delhi: In this year’s budget (Union Budget 2023), the government has reduced the target of the amount received by selling unnecessary government institutions. At the same time, the government has set a target price of Rs 51,000 crore for the next year 2023 by selling unnecessary government institutions. Which is less than last year’s budget. The government has set a target of Rs 50,000 crore for this year. Earlier this target was Rs 65,000 crore. Lowering the target shows that investors are less interested in the process of the government.
